SD-WAN (Viptela)




Introduction to SD-WAN
Before SD-WAN
✓ Overview of SD-WAN
✓ Advantages of SD-WAN
✓ Concept of SD-WAN Underlay and Overlay

Architecture of SD-WAN
o Controllers (vManage, vBond, vSmart)
o Transport (MPLS, Internet, Cellular. etc)
o Wan Edges (vEdges, cEdges)
✓ Function of vManage
✓ Function of vSmart
✓ Function of vBond
✓ Function of vEdge & cEdge
✓ Function of TLS / DTLS
✓ Function of OMP
✓ Function of BFD
✓ Controller & Wan Edges Hosting Option and Platform

Types of Planes in SD-WAN

Management Plane (vManage)
Orchestrator Plane (vBond)
Control plane (vSmart)
Data plane (vEdge & cEdge)

Certificate Authentication Component
o CA Srv.
o RootCert
o ID_Cert
Types of VPN in SD-WAN
o Management VPN (VPN 512)
o Transport VPN (VPN 0)
o SERVICE VPN (VPN 1-511 & 513-65535)

Describe SD-WAN Terminology
o System-IP
o Organization Name
o Site-id
o Virtual Chassis no./Serial no. & Token no.
o Templates
    ▪ Feature Templates
    ▪ Device Templates
o TLOC (system-ip, color, encp )
o vRoute (vpn route)
o ECMP Mechanism
o Polices
  ▪ Centralized
  ▪ Localized
